Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“So fear Allah and amend that which is between you.” Surah Al-Anfaal – QN8:1, reminds those of us who keep saying others do not deserve to be forgiven that, our anger may feel justified, but because they can produce long-term results that hurt us and destroy others, and Satan will keep hurting us every day of our lives until we decide to forgive, God says, “pardon and overlook. Or Would you not love for Allah to forgive you?” Surah An-Nur – QN24:22; He is the one that blots out our transgressions and will not remember our sins.
In other words, we are operating in dangerous places with Him when, despite our own shortcomings, we start destroying people and exposing the sins of others.
So let the knowledge that:
1) None of us really deserve to be forgiven, but God keeps doing it and when we keep bringing them up, we bother Him;
2) His Word says we should keep forgiving one another, even as He, has forgiven us and blot out our sins; and
3) Regardless of who did what to whom, resentment is hazardous to our health and spiritual well-being;
Teach you, if indeed you want Him to answer your prayers, to immediately reconcile with people you are in discord with, forgive and let go!
Pray with me: O Allah! Grant us forgiveness and mercy, There is no deity but Him, the Living, the Eternal, The Most Merciful. Grant that the remaining of my days be better than my previous, bless me with the spirit of patience and perfect for me my every acts for a long, healthy and wealthy living. Amin!
Good morning. Jumah Mubarak and a graceful weekend ahead!
